I hope you are all well.
So here is my 'Dot' post like I promised you all last night. :)
When I found out I got confirmed for Marc Jacobs new fragrance I was absolutely stoked. Firstly because it will be the Biggest job I have done in my career so far, secondly because I got to go to the Maldives which I previously had not been, and I really really wanted a campaign as I had/have been working so hard and I just wanted something that people would be like wow thats really great. I'm sure all of you have been in positions where you want to get or do something really badly and feel like your waiting and waiting for it to happen. well thats sort of how I felt. So when the option came on I told myself dont get to excited its only a option at the moment. because for all those who don't know options come and go like there is know tomorrow. So when this confirmed it just made my holidays as I was at home in Australia with my family and they were all so happy for me as they knew how much it ment for me personally and for my career.
Now lets talk Maldives. If any of you have been you will know how amazing it is and why I recommend everyone to go who wants a beach beautiful holiday. The people are so nice and the beachs, food, and skies are amazing. When I say the skies are amazing I truely mean they are. In Australia we are very lucky to have beautiful star filled skies which aren't the same anywhere else! However I spent a number of nights while I was there lying on the beach and looking at the stars its truely breath taking!
This was seriously the best job I have done so far in my career! I had the best time. Due to Juergen (photographer)shooting on film there was lots of time to do things around the island because the sun was to harsh for most of the morning. You can snorkel right off the island lots of beautiful sun to enjoy and OMG the food words couldnt even begin to describe how delicious it all was.
They had the most amazing breakfast ever. For those who dont know me personally I love food and breaky is the best! escpecially when its a buffet. They had people who would make you omeletes and fresh juices, cut up fruit and all kinds of amazing thing. I personally love fruit not only is it super great for you but its so delicious. The great thing about the fuit bar was there was so many types I had not tried before so I got the chance to try a bunch of things I had not tried let alone seen or heard of before. While I'm still on the topic of food. I remember this one day where we ask for coconuts and they came back 15minutes later wwith fresh ones from the tree was super exciting!
It was an intense trip there, long flight but being from Australia I'm use to them. However when I refer to intense flight I dont mean the distance! so I had to do the following.
drive to Brisbane
fly from Brisbane - Malaysia (I think, I go on to many flights these days haha)
fly from Malaysia - Male
fly from Male - to small random island
then boat from small random island - to our island.
On the last flight it was only 45mins however a very traumatic expericence that I hope to not experience again! we were on an extremely small local plane and the whole way the turbulence was seriously so bad I was so scared! when we finally landed I almost wanted to kiss the ground! haha funny now but at the time not so funny.
So thats about the trip I know I ramble a lot so I'm sorry for that.
But one last thing I would like to say.
I'm extremely honoured to have been chosen by Marc for his new fragrance and that he has continuely used me in a number of his shows; Marc has furthered my career a lot and I hope to continue working with him. I'm really excited to represent this Fragrance as I feel ever woman and girl can relate to her (Dot), as she is such a fun and interesting person. We never really know what to expect from her but thats half the fun right! I truely hope you all love the scent as much as I do and I can't wait for everyone to get there hands on it.
enjoy the pictures
I truely hope you enjoy the post even though its kind of long.
